Rate this:
In 1989 Aung San Suu Kyi ("The Lady"), returned to visit Burma and decided to stay, casting her lot with the fate of her country. Put under house arrest for 21 years, The Lady continuously refused every opportunity to leave. What would make a mother, a wife, a woman sacrifice her family life, her career, her freedom, in this manner? Through unflinching images of Burma's reality, interviews with refugees, survivors and Burma's democratically elected president and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma: A Human Tragedy documents the harrowing experience of living under the brutal regime of the military Junta in Burma, and how The Lady's constant presence in her homeland has brought her compatriots the peaceful show of strength that has fanned and fed the flames of democracy in her people's hearts, all "For the Love of Freedom."
